Peter Behrens: The O'Briens
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The O'Briens (Pantheon)
A first for Bookworm, a family saga worth the name. Not sentimental, not choppy and episodic, rather awash in the sights, sounds, flavors and odors of the past. We follow the Irish-Canadian O'Brien family through two world wars to the 1960's in prose that feels the movement of time.
